Solution: Space-Savers For Your Purse

We spend hundreds, sometimes thousands, of dollars on the perfect handbags. We drool over the latest styles toted by celebrities and Gossip Girls. Some of us even construct entire wardrobes around the perfect bags. With all the effort and affection we put into the outsides of our bags, shouldn't we focus a little on the insides, too? There are plenty of things we have to have—wallet, checkbook, phone… But when purse space is at a premium, we have to be smart about the extras we allow to float around in our little portable worlds.

Smartest Swap: Ditch the bulky pack of gum (and the unsightly habit of chomping away after lunch) and swap it with a triple threat. Bella Il Fiore's Sweet Talk Tin ($16) is smaller than a deck of cards and holds spicy cinnamon mints and a tube of lip gloss. Plus, the kit comes with a compact mirror built right in.

Safest Spritz: Don't risk ruining a fabulous handbag by spilling pungent perfume in the bottom. Invest in a travel sized scent, like elizabethW's Eau de Parfum ($20), with a stay-tight top and leakproof spritzer. The eau de parfum comes in not-too-overbearing scents like Sweet Tea, Lilac, Lavender, and Citrus Vervain.

Little Lifesaver: Avoid embarrassing deodorant marks and other oopses (think toothpaste drool and loose powder splatter) by keeping a Skid Out Sponge ($5 for two) tucked away. The spongy discs take up almost no room, can be used without water, and take only a few seconds to spring into stain-busting action.

Footwear Fighter: We keep a veritable makeup counter's worth of cosmetics in our purse, but what about the times when it's not our faces that require touch-ups? Stash a Foot Petals Perfect Polish Pen ($35 for a set that also includes cushions) in your purse to instantly do away with scuffs on your shoes, belt or bag.
